Biography

Jerzy Łucki’s first sporting activity was shooting, which he learned while he attended school in the small town of Nowy Targ. In World War I, Łucki served in the 1st and 6th Infantry Regiment of the Polish Legions fighting against the Russian Empire and was wounded twice. He was transferred to the Italian front after the so-called Oath-Crisis. After the restoration of the Polish state in 1919 he joined the Polish Army and participated as a lieutenant in the Polish–Soviet War. After returning home, he completed officer training at the Central Military School of Gymnastics and Sports in Poznan in 1926-27. He subsequently served in various regiments before he was employed by the State Office of Physical Education and Military Training in Grodno. At the outbreak of World War II, Łucki commanded the 21st armored battalion of light tanks as a major defending his hometown of Lviv and trying to maintain a passage to Romania. He died during the evacuation of his unit from Kuty to Romania. In addition to his appearance as a bobsledder in 1928, Łucki was three times a medalist at the Polish Championships in shot put (1923, 1927) and hammer throw (1923).
